As a new type of propulsion device, the rotor sail can adjust the speed according to the wind direction at any time and make full use of the wind force; compared with the traditional sail, the rotor sail occupies a small deck space, is not affected by severe wind conditions, and has the greatest effect on the lateral wind. obvious.
MOL announced an agreement with Vale International S to conduct a joint study on the installation of a wind propulsion system called “Rotor Sail” (Fig.1) on a 200,000-ton class in-service bulk carrier.
TR Lady is a CS Marine design 82,000DWT Kamsarmax bulker, built in 2017 by Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Group, and managed by Tufton.
New-build bulker utilises wind propulsion to maximise reduction of carbon emissions by up to 3,400 tons of CO2 per year
Two 35m tall Rotor Sails are estimated to reduce fuel consumption, fuel costs, and emissions by as much as 25%
The SC Connector arrived at Matrans Rotterdam Terminal in Eemhaven on Tuesday, 12 January, at 7:00 a.m. Last year, this vessel from shipping company Sea-Cargo was converted into a modern sailing ship.
Norsepower Oy Ltd., the leading global provider of auxiliary wind propulsion systems, received its first newbuild order – for the installation of a record five tilting Rotor Sails onboard a large bulk carrier.
Wärtsilä has signed an MoU tied to a License and Cooperation agreement with UK-based Anemoi Marine Technologies for the future sales and servicing of Rotor Sail solutions to the shipping industry. The agreement was signed on 22 October 2020.
